#159 Possibilities Over Proscriptions (Martin Brandt pt.2)

Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you, and you’re ready to discuss writing instruction! I have brought on one of my favorite educators in the literacy space, Martin Brandt, to discuss his book Between the Commas, and how to use writing instruction that WORKS!

Last week, we discussed:

  1. That writing is more than just responses to questions and essays
  2. How to achieve sentence focus
  3. The power of writing instruction that frees students from artificial constraints

And this week, we go deeper into the teaching of writing, specifically, we discuss how to evolve our approach from proscriptions to possibilities! 



This episode is sponsored by Heinemann—the leading publisher of professional books and resources for educators. 

Obviously, this is a challenging time for every educator. Your taking care of yourself and your family, you’re thinking about friends and loved ones you can’t see in person. And you’re also adapting to trying to teach and care for your students virtually.

Heinemann and their authors are providing free resources to support remote learning during this time.

This page is being updated daily. So just go to Hein.pub/RemoteLearning to find all of the remote learning resources that are available for you to access for free.
